Jobs for April

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - CLIPPINGS -

HUNT for camel­lias (right), daphne, win­ter-bloom­ing gre­vil­leas, thryp­tomene and other shrubs to give you win­ter colour and scent, as well as prim­u­las and pan­sies. PICK fat per­sim­mons, chokos, Granny Smith ap­ples, Beurre Bosc pears and quinces to eat now and store over win­ter. ‘CURE’ your pump­kin crop by sit­ting them on a hot roof or con­crete, stalk side up, so they toughen up and mould spores die and they won’t rot be­fore you are ready to eat them right through the cold months. VOL­UN­TEER to rake up all the au­tumn leaves in your street: ex­cel­lent free mulch for shrubs and vege gardens, and even bet­ter ex­er­cise. ENVY ev­ery­one who has planted crepe myr­tles, Easter daisies, or the glow­ing red leaves of or­na­men­tal grapes. Head to the gar­den cen­tre to make sure your gar­den is as stun­ning next au­tumn.
